Brittany Wimer Hospitality & Experience Coordinator
Visiting places like Japan, Europe, South America, and all over the United States, I found a passion for travel at a very young age. I knew I wanted to be involved in the industry for a living, I just wasn't sure exactly where to start - by a stroke of luck, I found ACI! After visiting San Luis Obispo many times, I managed to migrate permanently from Apple Valley,California and became a Central Coast resident! I will be finishing up my degree within the next year and plan on staying in SLO, growing with ACI for as long as I can.
Our network extends beyond our jet centers. From our maintenance services to our corporate jet charter and management operations, ACI offers a wealth of experience and resources to deliver the services you need in a timely manner.
ACI was founded in 1998 byWilliam Borgsmillerwith the desire to create an organization that fueled his passion. As both a licensed pilot and mechanic, he lived and worked out of a small hangar with a Piper Seneca III that served as the company’s first charter aircraft.
Today, ACI employs over 60 people and operates a fleet of mid-size private jet aircraft, two corporate jet centers, a self-serve fuel facility and a brand-new multi-million-dollar maintenance facility. Although ACI has grown by leaps and bounds, the fundamental passion for excellence, individualized service and unparalleled work ethic remains unchanged.
